We offer flexible options for testing outside of UL facilities, including witness testing at third-party laboratories or at the manufacturer’s facilities. UL offers a sensible system to facilitate compliant component choices and replacements—correlated to the applicable standards, helping to simplify both the design and testing process for manufacturers—as well as customized testing solutions.

UL has written over 150 U.S. fire safety standards. We provide authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs), insurance companies, architects, designers and building owners with the information they need to verify fire suppression product performance, reliability and suitability. All of those involved in protecting the public from fire recognize and implicitly trust the UL Mark, a benefit our customers can leverage to differentiate their products.
